Super sexter (see: 2008 Cotton Bowl) Houston Nutt has quite a history with the Oklahoma State football program.
-Played for the Cowboys 1978-1980; quarterback for Jimmy Johnson
-Earned physical education (he tells TV reporters it was female anatomy. HEY-OOOO!!!) degree from OSU in 1981.
-Coached at OSU under Pat Jones from 1984-1989
-He worked as OSU offensive coordinator in the final year for the blooming legend Mike Freaking Gundy.
I wonder if these two have any kind of friendship now. Gundy seems to hate everyone these days (he talks to his brother once a year? Geez) and you know Houston doesn’t call Gundy for a laugh because the OSU coach hasn’t snickered since getting the head gig. But coaches have all kinds of clandestine relationships the fans and media don’t know about.
During the 2004 Sugar Bowl, no one mined the story line that Nick Saban and Bob Stoops were old buddies. That didn’t really come out until a few years later. That being said, I can’t see Gundy and Nutt hanging out. If Gundy’s private persona is as bland as his public one (not his hair, mind you. That’s exciting), I can’t really see anyone wanting to spend his free time with ol No. 12. After all, you don’t want to bring the guy who gels his hair up, wears the Brut cologne, the gold chain and bomber jacket to the bar. Not since 1988 anyway.
